'St. Elmo's Fire' re-recorded as tribute to Tim Tebow

A song written before Tim Tebow was even born has been reworked to pay tribute to the Denver Broncos quarterback. 

British musician John Parr re-recorded his smash-hit "St. Elmo's Fire," to pay homage to the young star. 

"I was inspired by Tim Tebow, so I wanted to modify the lyrics ... in his honor of the way that he lives his life as being a great example," Parr told FOX 31 Denver. 

The Grammy-nominated song was released in 1985 and was originally recorded for the movie "St. Elmo's Fire." 

The re-recorded version includes the lyrics, "You know I'm out there/Down on one knee/A prisoner/And I'm tryin' to break free." 

The chorus includes, "I can see a new horizon/Underneath the blazin' sky/I'll be where the eagle's/Flyin' higher and higher/Gonna be a man in motion/All I needs my Broncos team/Take me where my future's lyin'/Tim Tebows fire." 

Parr also recorded a track "Just a Man" written exclusively for Tebow, FOX31 reports.
